Hinds County DUI/DWI Defense Attorney

Cody Gibson has represented clients facing misdemeanor and felony DUI charges, including:

  • DUI first offense
  • Aggravated or repeat DUI
  • Underage DUI
  • DUI refusal hearings
  • DUI accidents
  • Driving after DUI suspension
  • DUI appeals

Under current Mississippi law, a DUI cannot be nonadjudicated. This means that you cannot plead it down to a lesser charge - you must win your case or face the penalties of a DUI conviction.

Important changes in Mississippi DUI law take effect on July 1, 2014. After that date, first-time DUIs may be eligible for nonadjudication (plea bargains) and expungement from your record. However, the "look-back" for repeat offenses will increase to 10 years and the penalties for DUI will be more severe. We will approach your current DUI in light of these coming changes to protect your long-term interests.
